This is a 1.3 ghz, not the 1.1.

Geekbench score is 20% higher with the 1.3ghz, so this is actually a decent/good deal. Holds it's own against the 1.2ghz 2016 model.

This one also comes NEW and you get a soon to be updated Parallels Software.

Got the same one and returning it. Crashes all the time and can't even run google chrome well. I may have gotten a lemon but it feels slower than the atom based x205 I gave to my daughter.

Well, for what I am doing, I don't need the extra power but yea, it seems to be a good price for the specs.

I only used it for web browsing and light coding so I cannot comment on decoding or other stuff Big Grin

That's weird. Mine runs very smooth. I only use Safari so I don't know about Chrome. Specs wise, it should not crash even with Chrome.

I will admit that safari runs much better but I am not wanting to give up chrome...

Specs aren't great but this one scores decently, basically about as fast as a MS Surface Pro 3 i5-i7, doesn't seem like a terrible deal and you don't have to deal with Windows 10 (if you are a mac user).
